"Feedback is a Gift?"
Is that true? Would you agree that feedback is a gift?
It can be difficult to consider feedback a gift when we're busy thinking things such as
- "How could they say that? They have no clue how difficult this is!"
- Or, "Easy for them to say that! They don't have to deal with my stakeholders everyday!"
- Or, "How dare they tell me that when they've got so many problems of their own!"
We all know intellectually that feedback is critical to our growth and development, but it can be so hard to swallow when it's delivered so poorly.
Thanks for the Feedback!
Our guest for this episode is Doug Stone. Doug and his co-author Sheila Heen teach negotiation and conflict negotiation at Harvard Law School and they've written a terrific new book entitled Thanks for the Feedback: The Science and Art of Receiving Feedback Well. They were also co-authors of a previous best-seller entitled Difficult Conversations: How to Discuss What Matters Most
